    Abstract

    The development of new water-based fire suppression technologies has traditionally involved extensive full-scale fire performance testing. As the applications of the technologies grow larger in terms of physical dimensions and fire risks, performance testing of the systems calls for increasing and sometimes prohibitive resources both in terms of time and money. Recent developments in the capabilities of fire simulation software, especially the Fire Dynamics Simulator [1], suggest that some experimental effort may be replaced by computer simulations, cutting the R&D cost of fire suppression systems.
